Hi TrekLens Friends:
This is the other side of the Taj Mahal which not normally photographed. you find thousands of images of the Taj of its front view but much less of the angled view and the least of the back view.
The Mogul King Sahjahan, who built this tomb for his wife Mumtaz was imprisoned at the end of his life by his own son in Agra Fort which is situated across from Taj Mahal on the banks of the famous river Yamuna.
Here, while imprisoned, he looked through a precious stone reflecting the magnificent Taj on a full moon night glittering its marble to remind him of the love of his life. He eventually died there in Agra Fort. So here is the image of the Taj from the back as it looks from Agra Fort.

I have used a 300mm lens and there is a lot of smog & pollution to fight against to get this image.

Same image converted to simple B&W to show how it might appeared to King Shah Jahan, when he looked at it in the moonlight through a mirror since his vision was fading away due to his age. While in his imprisonment, he often looked at the Taj to remember the love for his wife Mumtaz.
